Eat & Drink
Refuel With a Vast Selection of Food and Local Brews
This year we’ll be slinging delicious craft beers from Deschutes Brewery, Parkway Brewing Company, Big Lick Brewing, Soaring Ridge, Chaos Mountain, Starr Hill, and Bold Rock Cider.
- Beers are $6 each, however you must use either a GO Fest pint from previous years (glass mason jars are prohibited though) or a steel pint from Floyd Fest, Deschutes Street Pub, Lockn’ or The Festy. This is one of the many ways we’re doing our part to reduce waste – no single-use disposable plastic cups here.
- If you don’t have a reusable pint, or you just want one of ours, for $6 you can get a 2018 commemorative GO Fest pint.
- See note below on how the proceeds from beer sales are put back into our community.
- Must show valid ID (so don’t forget yours)
- Cash and credit. Minimum of 2 beer tickets for credit card transaction.
- SEE CRAFT BEER EVENTS PAGE FOR FULL SCHEDULE

Just in case you didn’t know ALL BEER PROCEEDS go to help make the Roanoke outdoor community stronger. A percentage of proceeds are donated to the Roanoke Chapter of the International Mountain Biking Association (now known as the Blue Ridge Offroad Cyclists) who will be the jolly people serving you beer all weekend long. This organization has made amazing strides in partnering with municipal and other trail building organizations, and their collaborative efforts have helped Roanoke build multi-use trails faster than any other volunteer based organization in the country. The remaining proceeds go back into the event and to the Roanoke Outside Foundation whose mission is to make the Roanoke Region of VA a world-class, outdoor destination by hosting events that showcase the region’s assets and advocating for change.
